Great sandwich and beer

Had a quick late dinner here after I got into town and the pastrami was great. Decent beer selection too. Neat old school atmosphere. Good place for an evening with friends.

I love Tommy's Joint, have been going since my dad took me there back in the '60's. Good or Bad, not much has chanced since then - it is a little worn on the inside, I would not complain about a "freshening" but why be a whiner. This is good old fashioned food - Turkey, Roast Beef, Mashed Potatoes, bread... More

I have been eating at Tommy's for decades. It is a true San Francisco institution. It is basically a bar with a carving table for many different sandwiches. The staff has been there for many years and, in my opinion, are quite pleasant. They have just about any type of sandwich and hot plates, like turkey, lamb shanks, roast beef,... More

Although not in the best area, Tommy's Joynt offers savory meats for good prices. There's also a pretty good selection of craft beers. Check it out if you're nearby!

I stayed at The Opal Hotel for a week, and saw this funky restaurant across the street. Not much of an appearance from the outside, but as I approached there was a line out the door. In that line of about 20 people, there were several uniformed cops and four paramedics. I knew I was in the right place! First... More

My friend and I ordered their beef brisket dinner plate and it was delicious. Their beef brisket was tender and it came with mashed potatoes and a choice of salad and a bun. Everything was really good and the portions were big so go with a hungry stomach! The atmosphere of the places was so much fun. The decor was... More

My daughter and I had a chance for a quick visit to SF and I'd seen Tommy's Joynt on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives and I had no intention on missing it. I am so glad I didn't miss it. What a wonderful atmosphere, so unique and great selections. No frills, no fanciness, just great meat plates with a few... More

We got recommended this place by a guy working at our hostel and weren't disappointed. The food is excellent and fairly inexpensive! We got roast dinner plates one day, then came back for the huge Turkey Sandwiches the next day. Great place for a beer as well, good atmosphere
